Thumbs up Atheist @ X-mas Time

If it hasn't been figured out by anyone that has read some of my posts, I am an atheist.

I enjoy X-mas, it is a wonderful secular holiday to me... I celebrate it as a season for my family and friends.... past memories...

Any other atheist/agnostics out there? Anyone enjoy the Yuletide season like I do?

What do you get when you cross an atheist with a Jehovahs Witness?....


Someone who knocks at your door for no apparent reason




If there were no God, there would be no atheists.

BBP, I'm right there with you. I'm not sure if I can be called an atheist, because I'm not sure. I'm definately not a Christian, or any other form of organized religion, but I like to believe that there is SOMETHING other than us. But, I'm pretty close to being an atheist.

Yeah I love this time of year. As a kid there were the gifts, as a teen there were the annoying relatives, and as an adult there are the annoying in-laws. But hey, we get together we people we are close to, tell stories, and get drunk. SOunds good to me.

Happy Holidays everyone.

Depending on how you define the terms, I'm an atheist or agnostic. Don't believe in any god(s), but admit to the possibility. Sort of a philosophy of ignorance; barring a personal appearance by any god(s), I don't think anyone has reason to believe in any particular religious view. I live as though there is no god, so I guess atheist may be a better fit, but whatever

I don't celebrate Christmas, because 1)it's a religious holiday, whether you consider it Christian or pagan, despite the secular way it's celebrated for the most part and 2)I have no family ties to drag me into any kind of celebration. I suppose you could add 3)I don't want to buy a bunch of presents for people lol. So I'm not a particular fan of the season, it's just another bunch of days to me for the most part.

CKFresh,

Maybe agnostic? or deist?

I always loved the gifts...I like giving as much as receiving... Annoying in-laws are always a fine excuse to drink, but the holidays serve that function as well... Yep, I like telling stories of past and the good times..

Montrovant,

I think a person can be both, agnostic and atheist...

I don't celebrate Christmas in any religious sense obviously...but I do take from the season some of the rituals, especially the ones that hold family and friend dear...

What, no present for me? You cad! You bounder!

Aw, that is okay... we will have a good ale, good music, and good conversation... Cheers to ya...

Buddha,

you're killing me. why do you call yourself a religious name?

I define God to be X, since I know X exists, God exists.

Merry Xmas

It is my nickname for my dog.. he looks like a big buddha pup when he sits and look intently at me..

BTW, I don't see the historical buddha as a religious icon, I see him as a man, just like Jesus as well...

Like I said before on another board which I was attacked for using "X"-mas... it is a common abbreviation for Christmas... the X is Greek for Christos(Christ)... no slam, no disrespect, just an abbreviation...

If you wanted to make it mathematical, then X is an unknown quantity with you have to figure out... very agnostic(in solely mathematical terms)...

Happy Holidays to ya!
